Update: Hurricane Dora Weakening, Remaining Offshore
(Updated: 7:20 a.m. EDT) -- Hurricane Dora, the fourth named storm of the 2011 Pacific hurricane season, has weakened to a Category Two storm, and is forecast to remain offshore, according to the National Hurricane Center.

According to the NHC's 5 a.m. EDT update, Dora is located about 225 miles west-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico, and 285 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The storm is moving toward the northwest at 9 mph. Maximum sustained winds have dropped to 105 miles per hour.

Cruise Ship Itinerary Changes

Carnival Splendor, which is currently sailing a weeklong Mexican Riviera cruise, docked in Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday, where it was originally scheduled to remain until Wednesday night. Instead of remaining in Cabo for its usual two-day call, Carnival moved Splendor's Puerto Vallarta call from Thursday to Wednesday. Splendor returned to Cabo on Thursday, and will be at sea, sailing to Los Angeles to finish the cruise on Sunday.



Weather Outlook: Possible Affected Ships & Ports

There is a tropical storm warning in effect for Mexico from Agua Blanca to Buenavista, including Cabo San Lucas. Swells caused by Dora are expected to affect the southern and southwestern coasts of Mexico through the end of the week.

No additional cruise impact is expected at this time.
